Replacing Your Electrical Outlets
If an electrician has determined that you need to replace the electrical outlet, it’s not all bad. While there is a cost for this service, it’s also a wonderful opportunity to upgrade your outlets and add some functionality to your home. Some common and inexpensive upgrades that can make your home safer include:
- Modern Light Switch: If you hear a noise, feel heat, or experience a slight delay when you flip on your light switch, it is time to replace it. When replacing a light switch, consider upgrades like a dimmer switch to add more control over your lighting.
- Upgraded Electrical Outlet: If your home was built before 1965, if the faceplate is cracked or broken, if the outlet feels warm to the touch or if the outlet stops working, it’s time for a replacement. Even a standard light switch can improve functionality, while also giving you the opportunity to replace faceplates for some added styling in your home.
- USB Wall Outlet Installation: Many homes are installing these outlets to charge their electronics faster as the stronger current makes the charging much more efficient. Additionally, with added outlets and more ports, you can easily connect all your electronics in a more streamlined method.
- Replace GFCI Outlet: A ground fault circuit interrupter outlet protects receptacles from overheating, making your home safer and limiting the risk of fire. These are great options to install near water fixtures, as they can protect you in the event of contact.
Regardless of what electrical receptacle you choose for your home, the one constant is you need an experienced electrician to help. At Point Loma Electric and Plumbing, we not only offer installations and upgrades, but also we can start with an electrical outlet repair service to help determine if your existing outlets are salvageable.
